The rivalry between Mexico and Costa Rica heats up tonight in the final qualifier at the National Stadium. Costa Rica has already qualified for the World Cup 2014, Mexico who is looking for the win.

“Our goal is to go through and we will seek to win against Costa Rica,” said manager Victor Manuel Vucetich, who was brought in to salvage what is left of the Mexico push for the World Cup and saw his team beat Panama 2-1 on Friday in his first match at the helm.

Fridays victory in Panama moved Mexico into fourth place, three points behind Honduras.

That means Mexico are almost certainly looking at a playoff against Oceania champions New Zealand for a World Cup berth, although they still nurse slim hopes of sneaking past Honduras for third place and a direct entry to the finals.

The United States clinched top spot in the group with a 2-0 win over Jamaica on Friday. They have 19 points, four more than Costa Rica.

The game starts at 7:30pm local time and can be seen live on Teletica channel 7.
